Label Provision
Art.3 Article 3
Art.3.1 1. The Contracting Parties will take in their own territory, the necessary measures to prevent an increase in the amounts of chloride ions discharged into the Rhine basin. The national concentration figures are shown in Annex II.
Art.3.2 2. An increase in the amounts of chloride ions from isolated discharges shall be admissible only to the extent that the Contracting Parties concerned will offset such concentration in their respective territories or if a general method of offsetting it is found within the framework of the International Commission. This provision shall not hinder the application of Article 6.
Art.3.3 3. A Contracting Party may, in exceptional cases and for imperative reasons, after having requested the opinion of the International Commission, authorize an increase in concentration without immediately offsetting it.
Art.3.4 4. The Contracting Parties will control all discharges of chloride ions greater than 1 kg/s in the basin of the Rhine in their territory.
Art.3.5 5. Each Contracting Party will send an annual report to the International Commission which shall indicate as precisely as possible the increase in the chloride-ion concentration in the waters of the Rhine. This report shall be based on all significant data from pertinent national programs and shall distinguish discharges greater than 1 kg/s from other discharges. Should such a distinction be impossible to make, it must be reported to the International Commission.
Art.3.6 6. The Annex mentioned previously in paragraph 1 as well as the maximum concentration of 1 kg/s of chloride ions shall be reviewed each year by the International Commission as the situation develops. If necessary, the International Commission shall propose changes in the Annex to the Governments.
